If your system is old and outdated, there’s a chance it needs to be replaced. In this case we will work with you to identify what is the most economically feasible option. However, you don’t always have to replace your system. You can often extend its life simply by replacing a few key components. Depending on the brand and model of fire alarm system you currently have; we can offer you brand new or factory reconditioned parts. We can also repair obsolete, legacy and current models. All rebuilt parts come with a 2-year warranty.

Testing, Inspection & Maintenance

Although your fire alarm system may appear fully operational; time or other factors may have been at play. Our Ontario Fire Code (O. Reg 213/07) was designed to address this risk, and requires the performance of frequent inspections. Our fire alarm inspection will expose (and resolve) problems before the property and occupants are exposed to risk, and will ensure that the system performs as expected in the event of a fire. We have extensive fire alarm expertise and the ability to test, inspect and maintain any brand of fire alarm system. Many of our CFAA-certified technicians are factory-trained by various original equipment manufacturers.

Avangard Fire & Life Safety will perform fire alarm testing in accordance with current applicable codes and best practices. All fire alarm detection devices will be tested using methods approved by the manufacturer. The Fire Alarm Testing, Inspection & Maintenance page will describe the scope of work for each of the annual and monthly fire alarm inspections.
